We need common sense gun control

Editor,

So many, too many shootings. How sad we have let our society come to this. No political party or ideology is ever more important the one human life. I wish we would rethink guns and come to common sense gun control. Certainly, we don’t need assault rifles and huge ammo magazines for hunting, do we?

Background checks, too, would be a good move forward. Other countries, Australia for one, have acted and now have a safer, saner society. Can’t we too agree to think about and move toward this goal?

God bless all who have been hurt and killed.

Thank you.
